. i think he let us all down. i hate to say it. look romney came to play. i think -- romney came to play and president obama stayed home. listen. i looked at it not just as an obama supporter but as somebody who loves debate and has made a living out of debating. and started out -- look, in -- i was on the debate team in high school. i the debate team -- in delaware. i was on the debate team at niagara university. when i went to college. i coached debate. my father judged high school in philadelphia. i debated on crossfire on the spin room, on msnbc. i've debated on the road with bob novack ay and bill crystal and mary madeline and you name them. armstrong williams. alan keys, i can't remember all of the conservatives i've been on the road with. so debate is sort of my thing. i'm sorry to say it, on points and on style, mitt romney won last debate. he came to play. obama did not. and it's not that -- i don't know what it w the president decided he wasn't going to get down and dirty but he just let mitt rom
went down. >> cenk: it went down. it didn't go up. >> the income, mr. romney, and don't talk to me like i'm your gardner. >> cenk: he should have done that. >> he should have, and listening to what your intro was, it wasn't about the $716 billion. people would have forgotten that. even if the president came back and said it's not $716 billion, you're prong and whatever he would have said. it'sit's the demeanor. the lack of fight. it wasn't the specifics. he seemed tired. you know, and romney was successful. i think the president was a little befuddled because he wasn't expecting to debate massachusetts-mitt. he was expecting to debate and preparing to debate the candidate who has been out there onhe stump. >>>>enen t tt's what weat ce lcadad da fda fouou u have to be prepared for everything. >> you do have to be prepared. i'm just guessing but that's what it seemed like. >> cenk: the other thing, it seemed like they didn't want to debate hard. they didn't want to go aggressive. watch here one of the top campaign strategists for president obama as he explains what happened after the deb
bounces. it is already coming back down -- the polls were moving in romney's direction a few days before the debate kind of that natural, kind of movement of polls post convention and this certainly accelerated it. so the jobs numbers probably helped slow the obama fall but now we move into another week people will be talking about biden, and then a couple of more with romney and obama. >> bill: yeah, i was surprised and impressed, i guess that obama proved -- so he didn't have a good night, we all know that, but i thought he bounced back pretty quickly the next day. he has been having a lot of fun with the big bird line. and it showed a lot of resilience, i thought, and as you point out the job numbers came on friday which gave him another little boost, cutting the impact of any romney bounce. >> yeah he has an incredible amount of fire and energy when it is his back up against the wall. >> bill: yeah. >> it's almost like he puts himself in positions like that so that he can get excited about politics again. he obviously didn't want to be on that stage, wednesda
. we'll talk about that a little bit later, and talk about mitt romney trying to take down big bird, nobody was really in favor of that, i think. our phone number here is 866-55-press 866-557-7377 and, you know, we're talking about how barack obama is being treated. i have one more clip of john sununu that we didn't play in the last segment. not only did he call the president lazy and unattached but he also said the president needs to learn how to be an american. >> men and women all over america who have worked hard to build their businesses from the ground up is how our economy became the enemy of the world. it is the american way, and i wish this president would learn how to be an american. >> jamal: wow. so learn how to be an american. born in hawaii to a kansas mother. raised by his grandmother, his grandfather was a world war ii veteran, and educated in new york and massachusetts, needs to learn how to be an american, an american president. how about that. let's talk first to betty in california. what do you think? >> caller: i think he has been treated
. and that meant i had to reach across the aisle -- >> what would you do as president. >> romney: i'll sit down with leaders and continue -- as we did in my state, we met every month for -- monday for a couple of hours. there's common ground and the challenges america faces right now -- the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting in this country, and this deficit could crush the future generations. there are developments around the world that are of real concern and republicans and democrats both love america, but we need to have leadership in washington that will bring people together and get the job done, and could not careless if it is a republican or a democrat. i have dope it before and i'll do it again. >> mr. president. >> obama: governor romney will have a very busy first day, because he is also going to repeal obamacare. but my philosophy has been i will take ideas from anyone as long as they are advancing the opportunities for middle class families. that's how we signed three trade deals into law that are helping us to double our e
that chess game. i think he's inextricably tied to ryan, and i hate to see t but they'll have to double down and have the of a presidential presence. that's what is going to make the difference for romney. the substance isn't. i think seeming presidential, going in as an underdog, which is he is going as president that's the only hope he has. and that's very slim. >> if it's that hopeless in the debate, he may have less hope than i realized. great analysis. now when we come back, there is a new hollywood movie out against teachers' unions. the conservatives have figured it out, go hollywood. this is pretty nefarious. i'll show you the real reason why think made this movie.

to move -- >> romney: i have to respond. my experience as a governor if i lay down a piece of legislation and say my way or the highway, i don't get it done. when ronald reagan ran for office he laid out the principles that he was going to foster, lower tax rates, broaden the base. you have said the same thing. those are my principles i'm going to work together with congress to say okay what are the various ways we could bring down deductions for instance. one way would be to have a single number, maybe can have deductions up of that amount and then that number disappears for higher-income people. one could follow simpson boles. there are all kinds of ways to achieve the objective i have. and with regards to health care you had remarkable de25i8s with regards to my preexisting condition plan. i do have a plan that deals with people with preexisting conditions, that's part of my health care plan. and what we did in massachusetts was a model state by state. the federal government taking over health care for the entire nation is not the course for america to have a strong
't drink. yeah, we get it! the debates will come down to a few key sound bytes romney has been memorizing and practicing. >> oh, god. >> stephanie: a series of zingers that his team has written for him. >> two peanuts were walking down the street and one of them had salt on it. [ crickets chirping ] no. >> stephanie: romney has practiced delivering the lines on aides since august. aides who presumably are paid to laugh at the same line. oh my god, that was better. by the way nothing like repetition to make it funny. seamless delivery already. sidesplitting but then if you've heard it like the tenth time. there was a story about how much he pays his aides. obama's staff is like -- twice the size. and now i understand why romney's overpaying. he's a, not a very good businessman and b, because they have to listen to the same stupid jokes over and over. >> a horse with a long face walks into a bar and the bartender says why are you here? [ crickets chirping ] >> stephanie: no, mitt. why do you think it's comedy my
the sound down and watch what they do for an hour and see if we like them. >> pretty good idea. >> mitt romney can walk around and barack obama can swagger around the stage as they say. how is that? thank you all for having me. we're going to take a quick break here. we are coming back to 866-55-press. carrol in atlanta let's do that before we go to break. carole, are you there? >> yes, thanks for taking my call. i think debates do matter when you don't know what the people stand for. to me, mitt romney has already given his platform. he's a dummy. he's robotic. he doesn't want to give you any plan he's going to try to make up something about all the taxes, but you already know who you're going to vote for and not to sound petty but if you notice on his cars, he has romney in great big letters and look at barack obama and biden. they are all the same size. what an ego. he has flip-flopped. although i'm going to listen to the debates but my mind is made up already. >> call us at 866-55-press. we are going to break and we will see you on the other side. ♪ (vo) what is said here could de
